@AmberAustin: What surgery where you wanting to do?

I didn’t really have to convince my guy. I’ve always just been matter of fact about. When I get $$$$, it will happen. He knows I’d do it even if he wasn’t too keen on the idea.

Also, it help that I have physically pointed out to him the asymmetry in my nose. It’s not deniable.

I’ve wanted a BA for a few years now, and would love to have one before the wedding, but I’ve heard it’s bad if you plan on breastfeeding? (which I do!)

Any thoughts or advice on that?

I’m thinking about getting a boobs augmentation… But I’m not 100% sure, since I had never really wanted to have bigger breast untill now (wouldn’t have bothered me, lol, but wasn’t dying for it.), but now I do, I want my bras to fit completely! Many of them seem like they still have space in them to be filled, lol… But as it is a recent wish, I’m kind of afraid of changing my mind about it, so I don’t want to rush it….  The other aspect is that I really like how I look with certain clothes having small breasts, or how other girls with small breasts look, and there are types of clothes that certainly look better with small breasts (in my opinion) but swimmsuits and some types of clothes makes me think of having an augmentation.. ohhh well…

@misskittyx:

I don’t think I’d mind small boobs if they’d always been that way. It’s the fact that I’ve always had a C cup and now after breastfeeding I’m an A. It’s not even just the size that bothers me, its that they’re saggy and wrinkled. Even with the best push up bra, you can still see the wrinkles and they look deflated. I tell Fiance, I don’t want fake boobs, I want my old boobs back. I don’think they’re coming back though so I am considering surgery. It’s hard to get used to such a huge change with your body. I wish I could be confident and rock the small chest but I just don’t feel like me anymore.

@7-9-11bride:

Oh I see. I totally can understand someone wanting their old boobs back. As someone who has never had much, I’d be sad if I lost the little I have haha. Actually, Dita Von Teese (Famous Burlesque Dancer) lost a bunch of weight and got implants because she couldn’t get her boobs back. They look really natural… no one would ever know! Once there is more room for the implant, I believe it’s less likely to get the “half melon” look (ie Victoria Beckham where they don’t look attached).

I’m getting the spider veins on my legs removed so I can bask in the Aruban sun without feeling self concious on my honeymoon. And perhaps in the next couple of years some botox for the horizontal lines in between my brows. They’re small at the moment and can only be seen at close inspection, but I know they’re there!!!

Good luck everyone.

I got a big mole removed before my wedding.  Well… obvi much before so the scar healed.  It was in an awkward spot that would show in a strapless gown and I was very self conscious about.  the best thing I could have done!  Wish I got it earlier!

My gummy smile has bothered me for as long as I can remember so I started doing research on ways to fix it because I didn’t want to have what I think is a far too gummy smile on my wedding day (ruining the photos), one way to fix it is to have a gingervectomy. This procedure entails using a lazer to cut away the excess gum. After consulting with a cosmetic dentist he said that what I would need is a gingervectomy +a  crown lengthening procedure, but he didn’t recommend something so invasive because I have very healthy, white, strong, well-shaped teeth and healthy gums and cutting away as much bone as he would need to during the crown lengthening procedure would cause damage.  He then mentioned another procedure where they cut your lip on the inside and sew it down lower so it cant move as far up as it did before, but he thought that this was quite drastic too.  He then told me that he consulted with numerous other dentists and that one suggested something a lot less invasive. He thought the best option for me would be to inject Botox into the lip muscle, weakening it so my lip wouldn’t pull as high when I smiled and using a small amount of filler so there would be more lip to cover my gums. I had the procedure done on Wednesday and now that all the swelling has gone down I’m extremely happy with the very natural results. Yes, i still show a litte bit of gum when i smile, but its a normal amount and the fact that there is more top lip to cover it means that my smile just looks a lot more balanced.

It isnt a permanent solution as it only lasts about six months, but thats what I like most about it. I don’t think I will continue getting it done for the rest of forever, but I will get it done again about two months before my wedding so my smile can be picture perfect.

@ TheFutureMrsLamkin, i’ve had braces twice once whilst in high school and a second time whilst at University – I thought about getting them for a third time because some of my teeth have moved causing two noticeable gaps, but I actually cant go through it again so i’m getting two Lumineers to close the gaps. Again, the dentist said that this would be better as they cause no permanent damage to your teeth (i must have good teeth cos he really doesnt want to touch them), whereas with veneers they have to file down your teeth a bit. You might be able to fix your 1 crooked tooth without braces, maybe you should go see a cosmetic dentist and see what he has to say. I know how you feel, with me friends said i was crazy because there was nothing wrong with my smile and they dont really notice the gaps or gums, but the thing is that I notice and it made me self conscious and its even more difficult when you’re a smiley type of person. I had to consciously make an effort to smile in such a way that my lip wouldnt move too high and I dont want to have to be thinking about it on my wedding day.

I would def recommend the botox + juvederm combo. I was a bit worried straight after I had it done because it looked a bit ducky plus the anesthetic made my lips all lopsided, then i got even more worried once the anesthetic wore off and my lips swelled up (this doesnt happen to everyone and icing it helps), but I woke up the next morning with 80% of the swelling gone and by friday it was all gone except for a little bit at the injection points and now its saturday and i’m 100% happy.
